My sister is currently running day 2 of her 10 marathons in 10 consecutive days.

Not bad for a 58 year old who only took up running full marathons 5 years ago and at the end of this run of 10 she will have completed 100 marathons in total. Last year she did 7 in 7 so this is the next step up.

Fair play big sis, its not for me though!

I tore my hamstring last weekend after playing 5 football matches in 2 weeks, never done it before but only grade 2 so should be jogging again in a couple of weeks. Lockdowns definitely haven't been good for general health and fitness that's for sure and this is why I closing gyms was massively counterproductive IMO especially mid winter when it's difficult to do anything outside.

don't rush back is my advice. It's so tempting when it nearly feels right.

and destroying when it goes again because it wasn't

16st 11lbs. Bollocks, that's the heaviest I've been in the last 20 years (my best was 17st 5lbs). Started to cut back on things now. Anyone got any recommendations for a quick start at shedding the pounds? I know gradual is best but I'd like an encouraging start  Smiley
The plan is to lose 40lbs and I am pumping iron again.
